In the afternoon, I went with D to go see the footy. And then we had dinner at Ajisen Ramen. Nothing beats ramen on a cold day. And then we went to N2 because I really wanted to try the Thai milk tea flavour but it wasn’t available to order anymore so I ended up getting a Pretzella which was pretty good.
Yesterday my family and I went to DFO to do some shopping. I bought a pair of sandals (because it was on sale and I’ll just save it for next Summer), and my little sister got a shirt. We were going to go have yum cha after that but it was all booked out so we resorted for Food Star, the crappiest All You Can Eat I have ever been to.

I don’t know when this started happening but I am more comfortable listening to people’s problems than talking about my own.
I just finished watching a 16 hour drama in two days. Do I have a life? Clearly. It was an interesting drama but very corny and sappy, and unfortunately these kind of shows are what causes girls to have very high expectations in their relationships. I think this will be the last one I watch for a while.
Anyway, I remember back when I was a kid, when I used to watch dramas religiously with my mum, she would try to make it educational for me by pointing out the moral of every story because she knew how much I loved watching these shows. I suppose it was an effective parenting way of teaching me life lessons. Through dramas, I learnt the concept of karma i.e. do bad things and you will reap the consequences, good things don’t always happen to good people but bad things will always happen to bad people, altruism, etc.
Today I volunteered for Good Friday on the ship near the MCEC and my job was to stand at the exit, say “Abandon ship!” and direct them out. I guess I was too cheerful while volunteering because a few people came up to me and said, “You seem very happy for a pirate.” Totally not in character mode.
